TEAM COLORADO ride May 19th, IRONMAN Course

Come meet new IRONMAN Boulder race director Danial James and ride one or two loops of the ironman course (basically) link here for route (ROUTE Map). Each loop is about 41 miles. We are not doing the out and back on the diagonal, thus big part of reason the math doesn’t work!  Danial will give a short once over on the race and race happenings at 7:30 and there will be time for Questions. Wheels down and ready to ride at 8. The new official nutrition bar of North American IRONMAN’s BASE, will be in the house.

When: Sunday May 19th

Where: Tom Watson Park, on 63rd, just north of the diagonal and West of Boulder Reservoir

Time: Meet at 7:30, wheels down at 8am

Ride type: ride your own pace, there is not a leader per say, but look for folks regrouping and try to meet new people and find a group to ride with! In the past, we have a group that sort of sticks together with 18mph-21mph average and one a bit slower 16mph to 18mph and then a few other groups at other paces. Some people want to ride one loop, or two or modify a second one. Main thing is come meet new folks and have fun on the course and watch out for each other!

A fun course, an amazing venue, and the best post-race meal ever!!! In 2014, Paul Karlsson and Dig Deep Sports took over management of this Colorado classic, started by Racing Underground. Paul is the founder and original race director of the Boulder Peak Triathlon, and currently organizes XTERRA Snow Mountain Ranch. Paul also grew up at the race venue, and the run course passes his boyhood home. Racing Underground will continue to be involved with the event, providing top-notch timing and coordinating the pool swim.

The Lookout Mountain Triathlon kicks off with a 525 yard pool swim at the amazing aquatic facility located within the Mount Vernon Country Club atop Lookout Mountain in Golden. The Racing Underground team are the masters in coordinating on-time, efficient pool swims!

Next, comes a challenging 10 mile bike course that features some good climbs and fast descents as you travel the well maintained paved roadways on top of Lookout Mountain. Following the ride, you’ll complete a rolling 5K run on dirt roads, entirely within the Country Club property.

Bike to Work Day

National Bike Month is in May and includes an ever-expanding diversity of events in communities nationwide — but the biggest day of the month is Bike to Work Day. Most of the country celebrates Bike to Work Day in May, but due to Colorado’s mountain communities and unpredictable weather, the state legislature declared June as Colorado Bike Month, with the fourth Wednesday of the month being Bike to Work Day.

40% of all trips in the U.S. are less than two miles, making bicycling a feasible and fun way to get to work. With increased interest in healthy, sustainable and economic transportation options, it’s not surprising that, from 2000 to 2013, the number of bicycle commuters in the U.S. grew by more than 62 percent.

Hundreds of American communities have been successful in increasing bicycle commuting by providing Bike to Work Week and Bike to Work Day events. Bike to Work Day is June 26th STATEWIDE!
